The Graffiti Man by KEN BURKE
Read by Neville Phillips
' He enjoyed the solitude, walking through the deserted city with pieces of windblown newspapers his only companions. He enjoyed the feeling of power, like being the king of a lost civilisation, stalking regally through his kingdom with the symbols of his right to rule in hand - orb and sceptre - disguised as bucket and brushes.

Torture is still widely used as a weapon of political control. Hundreds of victims of political torture have been examined by a team of Amnesty International doctors based in Copenhagen. Their dossiers contain a grisly vocabulary of torture techniques developed in countries such as Chile and Argentina - ' picana (electric shock), telefono ' (beating the ears), and ' submarino ' (partial drowning).
Eric Robson is the first reporter to be allowed access to these files and to meet the victims.
